Charlie Cassara Opens First Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Fishkill

Family-Owned Restaurant Comes to Fishkill

FISHKILL, N.Y., May 27, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Charlie Cassara, a local resident, gears up to open his Dickey's Barbecue Pit next month, bringing the family-owned and operated business to the Fishkill community.

"I'm very excited to open this Texas-style barbecue restaurant and I think the community will enjoy it immensely," said Charlie Cassara, an entrepreneur who also works in construction.

This is the first Dickey's Barbecue Pit for Fishkill.

"After visiting the original location in Texas, I felt it was a great fit for the hard-working, family-oriented community of Fishkill. It's a community to which I can personally relate," said Cassara.

Kids eat free every Sunday, encouraging the whole family to enjoy Dickey's Barbecue Pit's hickory-smoked signature meats, home-style sides and complimentary ice cream.

"We are so thrilled Charlie will open Dickey's in the Fishkill community. Bringing a Texas family-owned barbecue restaurant all the way to upstate New York is a testament to his hard work-ethic," President of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. Roland Dickey, Jr. said. "Dickey's will strive to make a difference in the community with philanthropy and barbecue sauce."

Dickey's Barbecue Pit encourages community involvement, while also serving up 9 different hickory-smoked meats that are slow cooked every night at every franchise location.

"We are offering people around the country a chance to become their own boss without the initial financial scare. In turn, new locations are able to employ people who would otherwise still be looking for jobs," Dickey said.

The preparation prior to opening a Dickey's franchise is extensive, ensuring that owner/operators are thoroughly prepared to hit the ground running.

"We have so many new owner/operators who are investing with us. With this economy, we are glad people trust us for success and we certainly don't take that for granted," Dickey said.

The original Dallas location is still open for business and Dickey's Barbecue Pit is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.

There are 147 locations in 33 states.
